In case you don't happen to know this (maybe you do, maybe you don't)...There's really no need to use SVN within VisualStudio... it doesn't buy you anything and you can easily use it outside of the IDE. The IDE keeps track of when the files are updated outside of it and will ask you if...

I use SERVER as tfs server name before I grouped my system it worked properly. After I grouped my systems (VLAN using Single Switch) it doesn't works. But I can connect to the server system by using IP address, I can't connect the tfs server using IP address. How to solve this issue?

What issue? None of that made any real sense. What do you mean by "after I grouped my systems"??If you made large changes to your network configuration, you have to make sure all of your network infrastructure services work again, like DHCP and DNS. Without that, you can't reliably...

I have multiple branches checked out from the trunk(codebase). When "svn merge" command is used for merging the branch code with the TFS, a sonar build must be triggered(using .bat file). Based on this result (errorlevel), it should be decided, whether the merge must be allowedor aborted.

"Version control" is a big topic if you want to know how it works (internally) and each system is a bit different.As for usage, all you need to know is that it is somewhere where you put your code and it will keep track of changes for you and if you make a mistake you can revert back to some...
